I think most people have forgotten about the moonies
But yes I would call the W Times a right wing paper
I was just trying to find a link to an article about the initiative.


Here in CA anything can get on the ballot if they gather enough signatures.

As you can clearly tell, I was unaware that Pence had already signed off on it.

It's a stunt, and California has a weird process by which anyone can introduce a bill.

It will be tossed out very quickly.

Ah, kinda like our ministers have to discuss a comedian wanting to be the first Pharaoh of the Netherlands because law states if 40.000 people sign a petition they must discuss it.

It's not a bill, it's an initiative. That means he needs to meet a threshold of signatures of registered voters, and if that requirement is met, the initiative becomes a ballot proposition and we vote on it in the next election. Any citizen can start an initiative and gather signatures to get it on the ballot.

Yes. There's this one club in DC that has risers banned heels "because safety." But they were really just trying to make it more difficult for the ladies to infiltrate and drunkenly ogle the shirtless dancing boys.

That said, I think ANYONE should be allowed and welcomed and encouraged to be in a gay bar, and the need for gay bars is declining now that we can go pretty much anywhere. New gay bars are big and open with rooftops and big windows whereas in the past they were in dark, secluded alleyways. Straights go. It's great. BUT there are some ladies who get drunk and act like dudes.

So someone explain this Indiana bill to me. It basically works on the honor system, right? Is there anything stopping a, let's say, homophobic atheist from using Christianity as a front? I mean, there's no way this entire law can be based off of someone's word alone. But that's how it reads to me right now.

It also sounds like a legal nightmare, if that is the case.
